Shinekia Thomas, SCAD Professor + Designer
I had the pleasure of catching up with brandista, Shinekia Thomas for BrandistaTV leading up to our Dream Big Conference in Atlanta where she served as a panelist. This brandista represents a shining example of what can happen when you fearlessly follow your dreams. After studying at Pratt Institute in New York, and working to gain industry experience with designers like Donna Karen and Thiery Muegler, Thomas moved to Paris to explore her more artistic side. While in Paris and New York, Shinekia spent her time focus on building her credentials among fashion insiders in the industry. With experience working and thriving in two major fashion hubs, Thomas discovered the confidence to create her own fashion line: Shinekia Thomas Atelier. Fast forward, and today you can find Thomas settled in Atlanta, Georgia living out her purpose. Fueled by her passion for fashion and great design, Shinekia embraces every part of her career journey; and marvels at what she’s able to accomplish daily. Whether the brandista is teaching fashion design courses at SCAD Atlanta sharing her fashion and design expertise with students; or designing pieces for her collection, she’ s loving the journey and appreciates how her career unfolds everyday.
